Academic Advising

In addition to your student support specialist you will also be assigned an academic advisor, who has both teaching and administrative responsibilities within GPPH.

Your dedicated Academic Advisor can help you with the following:

  • Term B or the student’s 1st semester in the program
  • Following completion of 21-credits/Before Applied Practice Experience (APE)
